Merkel Says She Will Fight to the End for an Orderly Brexit
Updated on

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she’ll fight to the very end for an orderly Brexit as Theresa May’s strategy hit a major roadblock.

Merkel said at the Global Solutions summit in Berlin Tuesday that she’s committed to ensuring Germany has a solid relationship with Britain after Brexit and is seeking close cooperation on security and tackling terrorism. The U.K. prime minister’s push for a third vote on her plan for withdrawal from the European Union ran into trouble in Parliament again on Monday.
